The one thing that is consistent about Toshiba is that it always considers weight specifications when developing new products. This new Qosmio X75 A7298 which is another one of those desktop replacement devices only weighs 7.3 pounds. The modest number is true in spite of the 256GB SSD, 1TB hard drive, Blu-ray player and burner, mobile GPU from Nvidia and 17.3 inches of high resolution screen display. It sounds almost perfect.
The 7.3 pounds might not be a remarkable number according to some desktop replacement devices but considering the features that come with this laptop, users will not even care that the Qosmio X75 A7298 is actually too large to fit regular computer bags. This latest Toshiba device can let its users perform basic computer tasks, play graphically challenging games and even create as well as edit media without having too much difficulty. In addition, it will also sport an Intel Core i7-4700MQ and a quad-core mobile central processing unit. It has 16GB DDR3/1600 memory integrated with the GeForce GTX 77 by Nvidia.
In terms of the display features, the Toshiba Qosmio X75 A7298 has bright and respectable images although it is unfortunate that it is not a touch screen. It has a default resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels which can be modified and controlled using the large touchpad. What’s more appealing to this desktop replacement laptop is that it has an HDMI port compatible with 4K television boxes. This means that owners of 4K TV and even camcorders can show output using the Qosmio X75 A7298.
On the other hand, the Toshiba desktop replacement has a carbon fiber look that is even made attractive by the aluminum texture. At the edge where all the laptop jacks and ports can be found, a bright red stretch across the whole laptop which appropriately matches the machine’s red LED keyboard backlight. On a related note, the keyboard gives comfort when used. There are also numeric keys although it made the arrows have smaller size.
The Toshiba Qosmio X75 A7298 can do multiple tasks while still being able to run quietly and given that it has a lot of high-end hardware to support its desktop replacing potentials. However, the thing is that it only has an 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity and battery life of less than 2 hours and 30 minutes. It’s not much of an important detail but Toshiba could’ve done so much better. All in all, this laptop is a great choice for $1900.
